Travel refers to a person’s movement from one location to another—whether across a city or town; from one city or town to another; from one state to another; or from one country to another. Travel may be for business purposes or for personal purposes and often requires motorized transportation, such as planes, trains, and automobiles.

In Texas, travel regulations encompass a variety of laws and rules that govern the movement of people by different modes of transportation. For motorized road travel, the Texas Transportation Code sets forth the rules of the road, including speed limits, rules for commercial vehicles, and requirements for driver licensing and vehicle registration. Air travel is regulated by federal agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which oversees flight operations and safety standards, while the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) manages security at airports. Train travel is overseen by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), which regulates railroad safety and operations. For both business and personal travel, individuals must adhere to these regulations to ensure safety and compliance. Additionally, Texas may have specific statutes related to the operation of motor vehicles for hire, such as taxis and ride-sharing services, which are also subject to local ordinances in various cities.
